The woman police believe stole an Austin-Travis County EMS ambulance told investigators during an interrogation that she did not remember much because she had recently started drinking after several months of sobriety, a police affidavit said.
Shelly Robinson, 47, was detained on March 30 for public intoxication. On March 29, the day the ambulance was taken, she had been transported to South Austin Hospital for a medical condition and was released. Hospital staff believed her to be the person responsible, but authorities could not locate anyone when they found the ambulance in the 300 block of Ben White Boulevard minutes later.
Knowing what Robinson was wearing the day of the crime, thanks to two separate surveillance feeds, police questioned her about the incident. She denied remembering due to her drinking.
